We visited this old cathedral which is a reference point in all Germany since its orgins go back to the 9th or 10th centuries. Merseburg was an important seat during the Middle Ages. The inside of the cathedral is beautiful with balanced arches in the romanesque style and a spectacular organ. There are artworks by Lucas Cranach and manuscripts as... More

An espetacular place with really a thousand years story that is worth it visiting and listening to the tales of the place! Don't forget to see the Raven couple and listen to their story too!

This is in a quiet area of the town - very atmospheric with lots of nice, old buildings nearby. The church is historic and there are interesting artefacts to see. The adjacent museum is very good with displays relating to various eras.

Well worth a visit if you are in Merseburg. We visited last week and enjoyed looking around the Dom and museum. The museum has a side collection of intresting lighters. Not sure how it was connected with the rest of the museum but was fun.

I looked forward to visit the Dom again amongst other to have another look at the Ladegast organ (which is associated with organ works by F Liszt) and to purchase some relevant literature. The personnel were helpful but I got a rude awakening when I tried to pay. They did not accept VISA cards and since I arrived a few... More

The church of Merseburg was erected after Emperor Otto triumphed over the raiding Hungarian army in the second half of the 10th century. The building is of early Romanesque style, somewhat changed later - but the main character remains (unlike, for example, Trier). It became one of the most important religious seats of Germany (for a while overshadowed by Magdeburg,... More

The Cathedral of Magdeburg is one of the most important Cathedral buildings of the early old and stands at the Hochofer/Saale with significant sculptures of Saints and altars. It also contains the first bronze cast iron gravestone and several side chapels. Some owls live in the DOM card. Visit value also the subsequent Castle.

In spite of the fact that you have to pay to visit this important monument, it is worth the price. The figures are astonishing and there is an english leaflet that will help you to understand everything.
